I have a ceiling circle fluorescent light that is failing to work a few days ago. Appreciate if someone can advise me.
The light is attached to a ballast and has a lamp starter.
1. I have replaced the light bulb and starter to new ones and it did not work.
2. I have checked the best I could that the wirings are not loose.
3. When I switch the light on, it only gave out very dim light.
4. The same happened when I removed the starter. I even joined the wires manually from the ballast and starter to the light bulb(just in case the part which connects these wires are faulty) and it still gave out a very dim light.
The light is very dim, can barely see. But it's not flickering.
Unfortunately, I do not have tools to test current flow.
Please help. Thank you very much.
